"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree..."

I can report that the Christmas tree that I wrote about on January 26th...

...the one that I mentioned on November 9th that was already up and lit on November 6th...

...IS STILL IN THE FUCKING WINDOW ON CORNELIA, FULLY DECORATED AND LIT UP LIKE A...

Well, lit up like a FUCKING CHRISTMAS TREE!!!

Seriously folks, this has to end. I can understand keeping Christmas lights up OUTSIDE of your house because it's too cold to take them down (as long as you don't turn them on), but this is just plain strange. 

Do you think someone is dead inside that apartment and the tree lights are on a timer or something? Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK?!?

Call the cops or the EPA or PETA. Just send someone. The JW's might even go.

I think a nice letter of WTF should be posted on their door.

Having grown up Hoffman Estates, one is never surprised by scenes like this one.

Come here to LA, weird shit happens here.

A friend once told me a large enough hammer, high caliber firearm, or Molotov cocktail can solve nearly any problem.

Just sayin....

HUGS...

Better alarm the police, since the neighbours don't have contact with this person.

You need to call up a group of the biggest queens you know, march your asses over to their front door, and sing Christmas carols until they take that fucker down.

It could be that someone got sick, is missing or is in the war and they are waiting for them to come home.

Maybe it's a sex scenario gone horribly wrong, like in Gerald's Game.

Maybe someone got seriously hobbled like in Misery.

Or maybe, just maybe, a big red Caddie is hiding in the garage, frustrated that it doesn't have opposable thumbs.

It's probably that someone is at the bottom of the stairs, broken legs, crying out for someone to notice that those GODDAMN LIGHTS are still on and if i have to look at them one more day, I'm going to gnaw my broken legs off.

Or something.

Something, anything, everything is wrong with this scenario. Christmas trees should not be up long enough to get dusty. How the hell does one dust a Christmas tree?? No, it's just wrong.

Thanks for the update. I have been wondering about that tree.

Project Christopher said...

and you didn't give me a shout out that you called me on the spot from looking at the tree and I offered to come christmas caroling with you!

See if I give you a hippo birdy 2 ewe anymore!

HARUMPH!

still, let's go caroling tonight!

I'd be peeping in the windows to see if there were dead bodies laying around.

Brooke said...

This is hands down my number one pet peeve. (Christmas tree light in Feb, not dead bodies). I have been throwing a fit because someone on my street turned their wreath into a heart shape for valentines. NOT OK.

RAD said...

WTF?? No way.....you need to leave a xmas card and fruit cake on the doorstep and say Merry Fucking X mas!

Kevin said...

Maybe it's a "holiday tree." Is it decorated with Valentine's Day shit now ... to be followed by St. Patty's Day, then Easter ... and so on ...

I remember seeing one of those in WI ... and I thought ... how fucking stupid.

just me said...

People around here leave their shit up all year, so I probably wouldn't even have noticed! But, damn, I think you should investigate further, and, maybe, call the cops.
